To allow the pool to dry evenly, you will need to fill it with water.
When you are calculating your budget, be sure to factor in labor and materials costs. For most jobs, you will need to have a professional do the work. Labor usually costs between $45-60 per hour. An average contractor can resurface your pool in just 1-2 week for about $3,000. You should keep in mind that more intricate pool jobs can take longer and require more labor.
You should remember that resurfacing pools is not a DIY project. If you make a small mistake, a leaking swimming pool can cause severe damage to your property and backyard.
